terrible environment i was wondering, dan, at what point does the stock market no longer rally? at what point does it start impacting earnings of american companies to the point where it is hard to extract growth there and therefore hard to get stock market gains? >> it's important to remember that companies, this is the most important factor here. the u.s. economy hasn't been performing very well but u.s. companies have done exceptionally well in terms of managing not just the downturn but the slow expansion. balance sheets are particularly strong, especially in the technology sector where there's low levels of debt and high levels of cash. companies have not been quick to add employees back when demand levels haven't necessarily justified it. so what the stock market's done has driven higher not necessarily on top line growth but on bottom line growth. listen that, doesn't continue in perpetuity but we've seen it for a couple of years now. to the extent that we think you can go a little hire here in the near-term it is to get back to your first point a central bank play. >> as we clos
